CHI vs MIA Dream11: Two squads who have big aims for the season will clash here. In this classic Eastern Conference match-up, the Chicago Bulls will host the Miami Heat. Both teams are way above the 50% win mark and have played some terrific brand of basketball so far this season.
Bulls deploy the iso scoring duo of LaVine and DeRozan, both combining for over 50 points a game. Ball gives perimeter shooting while Caruso is an elite perimeter defender. With Vucevic in the middle and Coby White gaining some rhythm, the Bulls are putting together a winning squad.
Miami Heat has scoring depth too, in fact, three of their players in Adebayo, Butler, and Herro have consistently scored around 20 points. Defensively, with Lowry, Butler, Tucker, and Adebayo in the defensive unit, Heat is one of the elite defensive units.
Host: Chicago Bulls
Visitors: Miami Heat
Match Timing: 28 November, @ 06:30 AM
Venue: United Center
Bulls: Need to win against elite teams
Chicago has no trouble putting aside young or teams with losing records. However, a 4-5 record against winning teams implies that there is work to do against teams who can put together a plethora of wins. Bulls get huge production offensively and have a lot of sets to run on that end but on the defense, the high-scoring teams can overwhelm them sometimes. If the Bulls figure out this problem then they will emerge out as one of the favorites in the East.
Heat: Defensive identity but offense can be up-and-down
Miami can be a little off-track from offense and that is because Lowry and Robinson are yet to hit form this season, shooting around just 30% from three. If these two players get their game going then Heat will become a more imposing unit. However, one thing is clear, the Heat doesn’t allow a lot of points and can vaporize the opponents’ offense. In this particular match-up, Miami can test the Bulls’ offense too.
